Bobby Mote makes move toward fifth bareback riding gold buckle

While all the focus has been on the three-way battle at the top of the bareback riding world standings between Will Lowe, Kaycee Feild and Tilden Hooper, defending champion Bobby Mote has been quietly making inroads to position himself for another title run in Las Vegas.

Over the Aug. 5-7 weekend, Mote out-earned everyone in the Top 10 with total money of $5,962 and moved from sixth to fourth in the world standings with $61,476. He won the title at the Caribou County Fair & Rodeo in Grace, ID, shared the title with Feild at the War Bonnet Roundup Rodeo in Idaho Falls, ID, and finished third in both the Big Sky ProRodeo Roundup in Great Falls, MT, and the North Peace Stampede in Grimshaw, Alberta.

There is still a $26,000 gap to make up on Lowe and Feild – in a virtual dead heat at the top – but if he gets within $15,000 or so before the Dec. 1-10 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, it would be foolish to bet against him tying the event record held by Bruce Ford and Joe Alexander with a fifth world title. Mote, of Culver, OR, has not finished lower than fifth in bareback riding earnings in any of the last five years at the Wrangler NFR, averaging $98,773 a year there. Over the last two years, he’s averaged $127,490 in Las Vegas.
